Abstract

The coastal landscape of New Zealand has been utilized heavily by humans for the last 600 to 800 years, first by Polynesian settlers and later by Europeans. This paper documents the physical condition of Whangape Harbor and its catchment and uses sedimentological data (grain size, magnetic susceptibility, pollen) to establish links between sediment sources, pathways, and sinks. The AA. argue that human impact on Whangape Harbor has caused an acceleration of the natural process of estuary infilling, but has not controlled the type of geomorphic processes operating in the system
